Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Premium Reserve Malbec has a nose of dark fruit, peat, graphite, earth and toasted oak. The palate is medium to full-bodied with earthy tannins, slightly dusty, with flavors of tasted bread and wood. A generously-oaked, ripe, modern Malbec. With 300,000 bottles this wine represents close to 70% of their total production.
Wine EnthusiastHeavy oak aromas are dominant in this wine. Drawing in feel and showing a high level of tartaric acid on the palate, this tastes woody and resiny, with blackberry flavors ending on menthol and heat.
